A remote estate. A new caretaker. A classic ghost story reimagined.

The Reformers are thrilled to announce their upcoming fall production The Turn, their thrilling adaptation of Henry James’ classic ghost story Turn of the Screw.

The Turn is the tale of a woman hired to look after an orphan girl residing with a housekeeper in a lonely mansion. Two ghosts appear, and a struggle for the very lives of the children she is entrusted to protect, begins. Playing upon the similarities of the stories, the company will blend the play with elements of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

Similar to last year’s successful thriller The Revenants, the play will take place in a home. The Reformers gave their audiences a terrifying good time last year and look forward to doing it again.

Please note: seating will be very limited!

    I haven’t been to a play in a really long time and this looks awesome! I can’t afford tickets because I work in nonprofit and have tons of student loans. Pick me please!

    I scare easily

  8. Heather September 29, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

    I saw The Revenants last year in the garage. It was so incredibly moving and scaring, I screamed and cried and applauded and loved. I can’t wait to see The Turn! I love Turn of the Screw and the 1961 movie adaptation The Innocents was creepy and chilling. I will be attending the play no matter of free tickets, but free is amazing! Can’t wait to see you guys again!

  17. Ashley October 1, 2014 at 9:43 am #

    As someone who did not particularly enjoy reading The Turn of the Screw (Henry James can be so verbose I just want to tell him to shut up sometimes), I adore the story and have enjoyed every film and stage adaptation I have seen. I would love to see this production! And it’s in a house!

  18. MK October 1, 2014 at 4:24 pm #

    perfect for this time of year!

  19. Sandi October 1, 2014 at 9:16 pm #

  22. Kimi October 2, 2014 at 3:23 pm #

    The Turn of the Screw is one of my all-time favorite pieces of literature… For real.

  23. Meg Currell October 2, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    I. Love. Ghost. Stories. My family mocks me for it, but I’m nuts about them. Seeing something like this would be SO COOL! Seriously hope I win.

  26. Susan T October 2, 2014 at 5:19 pm #

    Read the book, saw the movie, and would be thrilled to see how this eerie story adapts to an injection of The Shining. Especially love theatre in an intimate setting.

  27. RonT October 2, 2014 at 5:43 pm #

    I’d love to be “a ghost of good cheer” while attending this “ghost story” play.
    In the spirit of Halloween, please pick me.

    Oooo… I love a good frightening tale! Usually horror films just make me roll my eyes, but I’m always on the lookout for something that makes me jump!

  38. Alissa October 3, 2014 at 9:28 am #

    Because I want to take my boyfriend to something creepy and hear him scream like a little bitch! He hates scary things. ;)

  39. Debbie Lusk October 3, 2014 at 9:55 am #

    I hate scary creepy things esp movies so this will be a good scare for me. I’ll want to see the end first though. Then it’s not so scary!

  40. Lindsay October 3, 2014 at 10:09 am #

    My boyfriend, a lifelong lover of live theater, has recently turned me onto it. I can’t believe what I’ve been missing! I’d love to surprise him with these tickets.

  41. Toby October 3, 2014 at 10:55 am #
